Product Description

This release heralds another important development for Trapeze, in that we have established a joint venture relationship to represent the catalogue and new releases of The Mustangs, a band who have established a substantial following on the British blues circuit. Based in south east London, The Mustangs built a formidable reputation by appearing at numerous festivals up and down the UK over the last couple of years, including many of the highest profile events such as Colne and Maryport. The release of this album coincides with their 2011 appearances at the Swanage Blues Festival and Isle of Wight Boogaloo Blues Weekend in early October, the latter on the main stage. The Mustangs are no ordinary blues band. All their material is original, and is, they say, music inspired by the blues, and not simply a succession of standard 12-bars. Their albums reflect their stage show punchy, melodic and entertaining and featuring the dynamic presence of singer/guitarist Adam Norsworthy alongside the veteran harmonica ace Derek Kingaby, with Ben McKeown on bass and Jon Bartley on drums. This long-established line-up has been working successfully for eight years or so, and the band has built a catalogue of five previous albums, for which Trapeze will be taking over the marketing, sales and distribution. Previously with Blues Matters Cross Border label, the band are looking to develop their UK and international profile and reach a wider audience through the new deal with Trapeze, which will also give them access to the US market. The bands live work will provide on ongoing platform for a solid programme of promotion and PR, especially on local radio, which will build on their already considerable following, and ensure a ready demand for this album from day one.

This in my opinion has the most heart and soul of all the albums I've heard from these guys, it takes them to a whole other level, both instrumentally and vocally and touched me in a way I didn't expect, whilst sending me off into a world all of my own. I love an album that can create a whole environment around you offering you a brief refuge from the mundane rubbish that life can bring, this album certainly does that for me.

So many albums out there are guilty of having several songs on one album that sound the same, The Mustangs are never guilty of this, every song that comes along brings you a new and different sound to indulge yourself in. Love it and highly recommend it!

Favourite songs on the album would be Cracking Up, Monkey On Your Back & Too Much Is Never Enough.

The Mustangs have to be one of the most interesting blues bands you will find. Every one of their albums is crammed with different blues styles, and then they throw in great lyrics and melodies, and this album is full of them.

The sound on 'Shaman' is bigger and richer then before, and it seems they have spent more time on production, because it sounds awesome - very deep and rich in texture. Of course, it's a blues album - but in that mad Mustangs way, which means you are never quite sure what you are going to get; I can hear all kinds of influences on here - Robert Cray, Bo Diddly, JJ Cale - and some unclassifiable sort of Prog Blues, such as on the superb 'Monkey On Your Back' and 'The Chancer'.

There are loads of classic Mustangs moments - the brilliant opener 'The Line' and the great rocker 'Cracking Up' but it also has 'Find Your Love' - a really dark, intense blues song about yearning and uncertainty. It sounds incredible and may be my favourite song of theirs ever.

Six albums down the line, the Mustangs are still coming up with really, really good records. How are these guys not better known?!?
